WOULD REVISE CONTEST LAWS ,9 Members of Iowa House Whose Seats Were in Doubt File Bill. DES MOINES, (fl) -- The nine house members whose seats were contested filed with the house a bill to rewrite the statute covering contests Keats. The measure for general assembly would require contestants to file written notice of contest upon the incumbent within five days after the official canvass is completed and with the secretary of state within 10 days It also would require the contestant to list any alleged illegal votes cast or any legal votes rejected. No certificate of election would be issued for any contested seat 'until the contest was determined and if the contestant was beaten by more than one-third of 1 per cent he would be required to post bond to cover payment of the contest costs in the event his contest should fail. The house speaker and lieutenant governor would appoint committees of five to hear, contests within five days after notice of contest was filed and the hearings would be held immediately, not after the assembly convenes as Uie present law provides. The committee reports would be submitted to the next general assembly as soon as it convened. MOVIE PARADE By D. B. K.
